    if every person could keep one of these better police in their pocket, no one would need a gun!

    Yes, why on Earth would we follow a more civilized group of Nations.
    :D

    Guns and more guns.

    I think the mentally insane should be armed because it is their right just as it is yours. The 2nd amendment does NOT say they CAN'T just as you seem to put a period and truncate the rest of the sentence to to suit your purpose.

    btw- What militia are you forming today? Did the redcoats come back? It's amazing how people put a period after the word arms even though it is not written as such by the same CONSTITUTION they quote for their rights.

    because we are America. we don't want, nor need, to follow anyone.

    we aren't idiots and think that mentally unstable people should be allowed to own a firearm. sure they have a right to, but there are laws that restrict that because they aren't fit enough because THEY ARE MENTALLY UNSTABLE.

    do you know who the militia in the USA is composed of? the organized militia, and the reserve militia. the reserve militia are all able bodied men between 17 AND 45 who are not a part of the National Guard and the Naval Militia.

    the Bill of Rights are amendments to the Constitution. the right to keep and bear arms is never mentioned in the original Constitution.

    Too bad a minimum IQ requirement is not mandatory in order to possess a gun.

    AND in the ORIGINAL constitution it was a RIGHT to OWN SLAVES...so what's your point.

    The Constitution is a living document and it evolves but then again they probably typed in on their I-phone ver 0.1

    Try not to cherry pick the parts you want and the version you want because sometimes when you pick cherries you can fall out of the tree.:D

    So then YOU have NO PROBLEM with MUSLIMS buying up all the guns/ammo? It is their RIGHT, correct?

    cops cannot be everywhere and they are not for personal protection. Nor can they always respond fast enough to save you or your family. What about someone who is disabled? Elderly? A lone female, or just a guy who is outnumbered by gang bangers? They and everyone has the right to defend themselves. But if you really feel that only cops should have guns then you may want to leave the USA because it is a right here. My gun has twice saved my life. My neighbor saved his families lives when he shot an intruder in his yard one night. People now a days just wont rob you and take your money and leave you alone. mentally ill and drug addled perps as well as 13 year old gang bangers have no regard for your life or that of your families.


    These a some of my thoughts, like I said it is a right in our country, and the most important imho. Otherwise a corrupt government can take control of it's people less they be armed. The first Ammendment and all others would be null and void.


    Ps Our Constitution is not a living document as much as some would like, and it never said we could own slaves.

    We also already have laws restricting who can own guns, mentally ill, felons and others are already excluded. In fact there are thousands of laws restricting gun ownership.

    but there are other laws that restrict firearm ownership. some of them i have a problem with, some of them i don't. so what's your point?

    no where in the Constitution said it was a right to own slaves. these are the only mention of slaves in the Constitution:
    nothing about the right to own slaves in any of that.

    yes it is. nice to see you remembered something about the Constitution.

    at least i'm close to the cherries. you are in the apple orchard.

    if they are law abiding Americans that have no problem with their background check, then by all means, they can buy as many as they wish.

    Uh... what I got out of that story was that those particular police officers probably could have benefited from more training.

    How about those caught with illegal firearms get fried on the chair? I'm ok with that.

    Sounds like you live in a bad City with that much crime.

    crime happens everywhere. you do not need to be in a bad area for a crime to happen to you. if you think otherwise, you are clueless.

    Some of the dumbest people I know have and IQ above mine. There are things that IQ (whoever he is) won't teach you.

    IQ and common sense can exist in one person(myself, for example). sadly, it doesn't happen with all people that have a decent IQ(droiduzr2, for example).

    Yeah, we should totally outlaw anyone from having guns except for police (maybe even them too), because there's no possibility that a bad person could EVER get a gun if it was illegal! Our government just makes illegal things just WAY too hard to obtain!

    Even though I don't own a gun by choice I am opposed to giving up my 2nd amendment or any other right.For anyone so naive to think only police should have them or that by making them illegal will somehow magically change morality or character is foolish.Making gun ownership illegal would only make it easier for the illegal element to apply their trade and/or for anyone wishing to change our way of life,(government included).
    Citizens right to bear arms is and maybe the only equalizing factor between our pursuits of life, liberty & justice.Crooks don't care weather it's illegal to have a gun because they will have them,but they do care if there's a possibility I or you may have one.Evil will always pray on the weak,(governments included).

    In Ireland, only police can have gunns (apart from hunters and farmers - shotguns only)
    I want it to stay that way

    And why should ORDINARY PEOPLE be allowed buy machine guns AT ALL?
